Counselor, Jonathan Garber, MA, LPCC
There are all kinds of reasons for seeking counseling. The ones we think of most have to do with mental health: depression, suicidal thoughts and urges, anxiety, grief, and navigating life transitions. There are plenty of other reasons as well, whether relational, existential, spiritual, et cetera. Common among all these listed and unlisted reasons is the theme of a problem, question, difficulty, hope for change and/or insight.
